economic leverage over ukraine because of the supply of energy. he has some influence in western europe, which still gets 25% of their energy from russia. so i think he's sitting there thinking that, in fact, he probably holds the better hand here for whatever negotiation is to come. >> charlie: do you believe he holds the better hand? >> frankly, based on what i'm hearing out of western europe and the reluctance of the europeans to embrace tough sanctions, i think, at least right now, i think he does. >> charlie: so if the europeans are not willing to go forward with tough sanctions, we're in a bad place. >> i think we are. >> charlie: you also have suggested some of your fellow republicans should tone down their rhetoric. >> well, this is a serious crisis that the west is facing, and, you know, when i -- i spent most of my life in the government at a time when, during immediate crises, people came together and were supportive of the president basically with the old line that politics stopped at the water's edge. i think people, right now while the president is trying to get the allies
islamist energies into a nonviolent channel. that is not the case anymore. now they are outlawed and they have been gunned down in the streets in large numbers, or than 1000. tens of thousands of them have been jailed. that he's on nonviolent channel has been eliminated. >> and i assume it has been radicalizing the moderates among them. >> the actual members, the nominally illegal. they became a safety valve. they were a way to direct islamist energies into a nonviolent channel. that is not the case anymore. dues-paying members who attend brotherhood ideology, i do not think they are likely to take up arms. that is a relatively small number of people who voted for president morsi. when you're talking about radicalizing, you are talking about younger people who might have been attracted to the muslim brotherhood, but did not become fully involved. now they may be attracted to these newer, more militant groups. there is a new group carrying the fight militant insurgency egypt right now. they grew up and they were formed in the sinai initially with the aim of making trouble for isra
crush the ukrainian oligarchs. they can cut off the energy to ukraine. if putin does not want to use leverage to support secession is financial levers over the medium-term to make ukraine the losers. >> what is the possibility of civil war? >> i think it is low in the near term. today, the most interesting news to me has come out of crimea where the russians have a base and naval infantry division. there were riots -- demonstrations that looked a little like riots. they were not violent. they forced the town council there to get rid of their mayor and except a russian citizen as their mayor. they also flew some russian flags. that shows their disposition. the crimean people, the majority of them have no interest in being a part of ukraine. if the russians want to stir up trouble, that's where they can do it. in the near-term, i don't think the russians will push that. if they push for civil war, you will have a republic of western ukraine is going to want to join nato imminently. outia makes a lot of money of transiting angie -- energy through ukraine and if they cannot do that, that
